How do you all recover from a bad mood?

I find that what seems to work best for me is to rant a bit, then sing loudly along with music. (Is singing when bad-moody weird?) I especially love singing along to the Next To Normal soundtrack to help me get over being angry. I think it's partly because a now-ex-friend of mine sent me a really hateful email around the time I got the Next To Normal soundtrack, so I was listening to the soundtrack on repeat as I wrote the reply I never sent, and for a change really appreciated the swearing. (Although I still don't say the f word when I sing along. It just doesn't feel right to me - stupid upbringing. :P)

Here's a few bits I especially love singing along to when I'm pissed (off): )

I thought I'd do a review-type-thing of one of my favourite TV shows, partly so I can show off my new wallpaper! =D Yes, another new wallpaper... *rolls eyes*

Pushing Daisies is a humorous crime investigation show with a romantic subplot. Except it has one major difference – the main character (Ned) can bring people back from the dead. He uses his ability to talk to murder victims – but he only has one minute, or someone else will die. It's a great concept! And it also means that one of the main characters is an "alive again" dog! (Ned hates to use the term "zombie" – 'It's disrespectful. Stumbling around squawking for brains? It's not how they do. And "undead"? Nobody wants to be "un"-anything. Why begin a statement with a negative? It's like saying "I don't disagree." Just say you agree.')

Pushing Daisies has some great humour, especially from Emerson (a PI) and Olive (the waitress at Ned's shop, The Pie Hole). Ned's a pie-maker, when he's not helping Emerson solve crimes. And for interest's sake, Olive is being played by Kristin Chenoweth, who used to play the role of Glinda in Wicked. She's a brilliant singer! She sings in Pushing Daisies:

The visual style, wonderful music, and brilliant narration of Pushing Daisies have been compared to a number of my favourite tv shows and movies, especially Amélie, Big Fish, and Arrested Development. The romance element is a little overdone at times, but it's cute. =) Pushing Daisies is starting in Australia sometime this month, and the second season will be starting in the US in September. I can't wait! *dances*

Oh, and Ned's "alive again" dog, Digby, is one of my favourite characters. =D He's the star of my new wallpaper:
